In 1995 Sustrans was awarded a grant from the Millennium Commission to build a national network of walking and cycling routes.
Over the years, millions of journeys have been carried out on the Network, providing safe and convenient places for people to move and be active.
Now, we want to celebrate this iconic national asset with you.
Throughout the UK, the Network takes you to unique places and unforgettable spots. Can you visit all these places and tick them off your list?The National Cycle Network Bucket List
